Walkers are welcome to follow all or part of the route marked for the trail race. and may start and finish whenever they choose. The full 8½ mile route will take around 3 hours at average walking speed, so we recommend starting at 9am, to be back in town in time for lunch at 12 noon. Finish times will not be recorded for walkers.

There will also be an easier 3 mile family walking route marked from Shepton Mallet to Ham Woods viaduct and back. This should take around 2 hours so you should set off around 10am to be in the market place for 12 noon.

There is no charge to walk the marked routes.
